Natural Shredded Dunlop Latex ingredients:

      1  Organic Latex Rubber 96%

      2  Zinc Oxide 2%

      3  Fatty Acid Soaps 1%

      4  Sulfur 1%

      5  Sodium 1%  

Item 1 is pure, natural rubber harvested exclusively from the “Hevea Brasiliensis” tree, which grows primarily in South-East Asia. Natural tree rubber is sustainably harvested and the trees are not harmed but skillfully tapped, similar to how we harvest maple syrup here.  

Ingredients 2 thru 5 are foaming agents that are essential to the vulcanization, foaming and curing process that all latex cores must go though. The finished product is then washed a minimum of 3 times to remove any residuals that may be left over after curing. 

I feel assured that we are selling a product that, for being man-made, is quite natural.

4 lbs = approximately 1 cubic foot, loosely packed

Pair with our hemp sand filling to make an amazing sleep surface.  See our concept hemp sand mattress here.

Biodegradable shredded latex, although is heavier than non biodegradable synthetic pellets, is a popular choice for a natural bean bag filling.  

The Dunlop process used is considered to produce a more durable foam for a longer lasting product.

Shredded latex is a great way to increase the softness of hemp or buckwheat hulls, you only need a little to make a big difference! 

Natural Materials

All natural materials will break down over time, creating some residual dust, just as nature has intended! This dust can easily be maintained, vaccumed easily or shaken out in a mesh bag.

Living with natural materials is a choice and does require some extra effort.

Chances are, if you are hear on our site, you already know if it is the right choice for you and your family.

You can order a sample (travel pillow?) to test out any materials you may not be familiar with.

Most natural products, right out of the bag, will have a scent but unfortunately the aroma ofthe materials usually dissapates over the first week.

Shipping & Returns

Fast shipping via UPS Ground or USPS for small packages.

All sales are final as organic bedding materials cannot be restocked. (Thank you for understanding)

Dimensions

See produt description above for dimensions. Reach out to us if you need help calculating the amount of fillings to order for your project.

My husband and I bought a kit ...

"My husband and I bought a kit and hulls from you almost 6 months ago. I was telling a good friend last week that we will most likely never buy a traditional mattress again!  It is very comfortable and I truly appreciate the non-toxic, completely compostable aspect. Also, my husband and I really enjoy that movements don't shake the entire bed. Most impressively, neither of us have woken with a back ache in six months."
